We’ve heard of Lightning charge cables being able to deflect bullets, but here’s an iPhone 5/5s case that’s built with a carbon fiber lining that can take a shotgun blast at 20 yards. Proporta’s Leather Case with Carbon Fiber Lining (US$59.95) takes a blast from “Uncle Barry’s shotgun” and is none the worse for wear when it is recovered by the film crew.
The company also has an iPad mini with Retina display case that has survived the shotgun test. If you happen to be going out duck hunting with someone who has lousy aim, it might be worth it to buy a bunch of these and place them around your body… Just sayin’.
